BLACK JOE Brand Vintage Grape Crate Label (LL151)

$3.99

This fruit crate label was used by Ed Kurtz, Lodi, California.  Image of African American, used for Zinfandel wine grapes.  On wine grapes for red wine, the darker the better, a sign of maturity.  This label would have gone on a crate of juice grapes, grapes shipped back east and sold to home wine makers.  They generally shipped in 36 pound crates and people would buy a few crates for making wine.

  • Printed in the 1930s.
  • Mint condition.
An original fruitcrate label, not a copy, not a computer printed art print.  A vintage label intended to be pasted on a crate, but never used.  Old stock from a warehouse find.
